What I Should Be Doing...

Goodness... I'm sitting here snuggled under covers, perusing facebook and writing this blog.  Feeling a little guilty while doing so...Y'all - you should see my house.  There's unknown sticky substances on my kitchen floor.  Dirty dishes in the kitchen sink.  Zaxby's sacks (yep - that IS what I cooked for dinner) cluttering the counters, and countless balls and little alphabet magnets all over the place. There are remnants of Valentines Day crafts on the table and scraps of papers the littles failed to pick up after craft time (they tried!).  The contents of every basket in the bathroom is dumped out in the floor and there's a game of Candyland that we started but didn't finish in the floor.  Oh and I can't forget the bags of stuff I pulled together to spend the night with some dear friends because our power was out today.  It came back on, but the bags are still packed.   And I should be cleaning it all up.  But I'm pooped. 

I've always tried to remind myself that at the end of the day, my kiddos won't give a hoot about a clean house.  Today I need that reminder.  I KNOW that they won't remember a clean house today, here's hoping they will remember the Candy Land game, beating me at Disney Beat the Parents (twice, but who's counting...), the impromptu dance party, watching Joshua bust a move and the Valentine's Day crafts we made for my new niece. Oh and to top it off - we spontaneously went to see a movie... Frozen is SOOOOO good.   Yes, those are the memories that build a family.  Not Windex and pledge and the trusty ole vacuum.  Here's to many more dance parties and fun games of "win lose or draw" on the chalk board... 

Oh Snow days, you.are.exhausting.  Fun, but exhausting!

Here's a few pics from the other snow day this week (Monday) - today, it was too icy to get out and play.  :-)
